Multiply!

God blessed them; and God said to them, “ Be fruitful and multiply… Gen. 1:26 NASB

This is the first recorded command.   What did He mean?   Is He saying grow fruit trees?  Is He commanding high scores in math?  
Or is He saying, “I made the first two of you… male and female… now you go and make more of you.

Someone said, “this is the only commandment of God that man has had no trouble with”!    It is unfortunate that man has made the multiplication process dirty.   However, our ability to, “Multiply” does have some boundaries!   It’s called, “marriage”!   As it is written, "Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge”   [Heb. 13:4]

So… if your married… it’s honorable… so… go and make as many kids as you can.   Obey God and make Grandparents happy!       Multiply beloved!
